Yeonjun from boy band TXT prepared a wide selection of pastries to review while fans looked on.

In a livestream titled “Interactive Bread Broadcast,” he lived up to the promise of the title right from the very beginning by asking viewers which filter he should use.

Wearing a mask, a cap and an oversized faux fur black hoodie, the TXT member cut a rather casual figure, prompting some fans to compare him to a penguin.

While eating pastries, he talked about another favorite food of his -- kimchi.

“I’ve always loved kimchi ever since I was young, especially mustard greens kimchi,” he said while taking a bite of the pastry he was eating.

When asked what he gets up to lately after practicing, Yeonjun said he’s into watching dramas and playing games in between.

The line of questioning took a rather serious turn as viewers asked whether the musician thinks he is handsome.

Though the answer wasn’t yes, he made it clear that he has plenty of self-love as he said, “Love myself.”

Talking about his experience on the basketball reality show “Handsome Tigers,” the singer said people around him had said it was fun to watch, including his parents.

When viewers expressed concern about him falling over on the show, the singer told them not to worry.

He cracked a smile in anticipation of his medium-rare steak as the dish finally arrived for the singer, who was already hungry.

Sounding confident, Cha recommended that viewers opt for medium-rare over medium or well done.

Given the popularity of his band, Sunday’s livestream was watched around the world and reached Japanese, Chinese and Indian fans.

Ong Seong-wu talks new music

Singer Ong Seong-wu caught up with fans on Sunday, talking about his new single “Gravity.”

Ong said sleeping in until early in the afternoon was normal on the weekend, but he was up early on a Sunday this week as he talked about being on a music show without an audience.

“It does feel empty performing without you guys,” the singer said. Music shows are being filmed without audiences nowadays given the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

Wearing a black jacket and a black top, the singer cut a stylish figure.

Ong also had some firm words for viewers who talked about cherry blossoms.

“I didn’t know the time had already come. It’s March 29, so yeah, it makes sense,” he said before adding that his busy schedule kept him distracted and stopped him from taking in the scenery.

“Don’t be tempted by cherry blossoms unless you are driving by. It’s dangerous, you know.

“You can’t even come and support me, so …” he quipped.
